he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might want to listen to this. i'm still not sure exactly what governor romney was saying about his promise of $5 trillion in tax cuts. i mean i heard the platitudes but i didn't hear any specifics. and, i thought he was doing a lot of shape shifting on that one. >> governor, good evening. this is rachel. we've been talking on set here about our surprise we didn't hear more from the president on his standard attack line. we thought we would heard more on the 47%. more attacks on bain. why do you think those were absent from this debate? >> because i think that this debate needed to get to the, you know, the two contrasting plans that these two mortal individuals are bringing to the american people. look, we can choose greater tax cuts for, for the wealthy and see if that works better for us this time. or, we can, we can get back to the more balanced approach that president clinton used to retire deficits and our parents and grandpar
